Luke ran ingram at point last year too for a stretch


Yeah, it started in preseason last year. I was at the game where it happened vs GSW and I went nuts. Told my wife OMG they're trying to make Ingram a point forward! She was like whatever. Haha.


Lol

Rookie year

points 9.4
rebounds 4
assists 2.1
blocks .5
steals .6
FG .402
3FG .294
FT .621

This season (So far)

points 15.9
rebounds 5.4
assists 3.7
blocks .7
steals .8
FG .455
3FG .350
FT .679

Improvements across the board in only 4 more minutes a game. If he makes another jump like this next season we are talking about a great player. I would like to see him get better fundamentally on defense. Maybe get his block/steals to above 1. Over all I'm happy with him and remind myself he's only 20 years old still.

Nice improvements. Think that undersells his defensive improvement too.

Listening to Access Sportsnet, Luke's going to play BI at PG. He has the height and ball handling skills. He's a good and willing passer. I like the move. He's going to be sharing time or playing with IT until Lonzo's ready to play.

Luke's a mystery. Some moves make a lot of sense, some none (to me). I hold for Luke, I'm just another armchair coach. The team is starting to get it together. 6 games out of the 8th spot. It's a long shot but I'm still not giving up.

BI is so efficient tonight.

Him drive and kicking is nice to watch especially the pass to hart for 3.

Also like his quick trigger on that corner 3

I just love his decision making. I don't feel nervous when he's got the ball in his hands. 6 assists, 1 TO tonight. His assist:TO ratio has been fantastic at point forward. In 4 games, he's averaged 6.5 assists and 2.0 TO's. For a 20 year old wing, that's incredible.

He isn't the prototypical point guard, but he has been really, really good. It's like his vision and passing went to a completely different level.

This is why I said a few weeks ago that he reminded me of Pippen.. and some of you went nuts lol.. Not saying he'll ever be on that level.. not saying he wont.. Just saying his game reminds me of Pippen when he's being a facilitator.

just looking at the stats, Ingram is ahead of 23 year old, second year Pippen as a passer. He's also several years ahead of guys like Batum/Durant, who also became excellent wing facilitators in their primes.

His three pointer looks much more fluid. Could the shooting coach be paying off?

Pippen didn't enter the league until age 22. Here is a per 36 minute comparison of Ingram now and Pippen in his rookie year:

Ingram (Age 20): 16.9 PPG (52.1% TS), 5.8 RPG, 3.9 APG, 0.8 STL, 0.8 BLK
Pippen (Age 22): 13.6 PPG (48.9% TS), 6.5 RPG, 3.7 APG, 2.0 SPG, 1.1 BPG

Not really a comparison defensively, yet... offensively, Ingram is clearly on par (and maybe ahead as a scorer) despite being two years younger.

Not to mention he's still underdeveloped physically..

He's going to get faster and more explosive..

His shooting will continue to improve..

His passing and defense will also continue to improve..
